Property Description

Beautiful quinta composed of agricultural land, farming terraces, grazing land, medronho, cork and fruit trees as well as a house and lots of water with a total size of 13ha.

There is a large, flat field at the bottom of the land with a stream. This area has been used as a large vegetable garden, for camping, grazing for horses and there are lots of 3-year-old asparagus plants and fruit trees planted. There is another hidden valley with some beautiful farming terraces with ancient stone walls. This has been used for more vegetable gardens as well as fruit trees and has a great natural spring above the terraces providing fresh water all year.

The rest of the land has been made into pastures for horses with medronho bushes and cork trees. There are also areas of steeper land filled with native fauna and flora. Every year the medronho bushes make a great harvest of berries which can be sold to make the liquor medronho. Last year the medronho harvest made about 1 tonne of berries, worth around 2000 euros.

There are 3 watering points spread across the land so the animals can drink. In the centre of the land is a lake which provides the whole land with water for irrigation. Above the lake there are 2 more springs, and a 30,000l water tank. The land also includes 2 excellent downhill mountain bike tracks which go from the very top to the very bottom. These also make for lovely walking and access trails. The land is very well cleared making it very safe from forest fires.

As well as the cork trees and medronho there are many fruit trees, mostly still young but some providing fruit already, including – bananas, avocado, passion fruit, olives, carob, oranges, figs, grapes, mulberry, quince, khaki, lemons, peach, pear, apple, almond, loquat, pomegranate, plum etc.

This land has abundant water. It has a lake full of black bass, 3 springs and a stream. . A solar pump which pumps water up from the spring for the house and another solar pump which pumps water up from the lake for irrigation. The agricultural zone at the bottom of the land is irrigated by gravity from the lake.

Above the lake is a beautiful platform with a caravan/open wooden house with it’s own solar system. There are great views from here as well as a beautiful little garden.

There is a tool shed and chicken coop.

The house has great views of the surrounding mountains, sun all day and total privacy. It has recently been rebuilt from a ruin and measures 130m2 but is not yet finished. It is habitable with solar electricity, a solar hot water system and all wiring and plumbing fitted. There is a large kitchen/dining room, 2/3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a large lounge/extra bedroom. It has a beautiful southwest-facing veranda and an old pizza oven. To finish the house will be quite easy, it is just missing the kitchen and bathroom and some finishing touches. There is wifi covering 50% of the 13 hectares.

Surrounding the house is a beautiful garden where flowers, herbs, vegetables and trees have been planted, there is also a s a tool shed and chicken coop.

Situated in a fantastic location, 13 minutes to Marmelete, 25 minutes to Lagos and 15 minutes to Aljezur. It is perfectly located close to a good road yet has total privacy. There are some neighbours 500m away including a cafe, yet it remains totally private. The house is located high above the valley meaning a great climate with no frost.

A fantastic property for a community/permaculture farm due to its size, agricultural potential and water supplies.
